I have taught voice at the University of Southern California and have worked with the singers from the Met in NYC. I have collaborated with opera singers from the faculty of the Eastman School to such luminary as Marilyn Horne who has sang at LaScala, the Met and for 5 presidents of the United States at the White House. My collaboration to bring awareness to singing continued with conversations broadcast over the airwaves with Tony Randall. I have composed for voice and my compositions have been premiered at Lincoln Center by the Wagnerian singer in a Salon for the entire choir of the Metropolitan Opera House. My vocal compositions and performances range from premieres at the Dickens Festival in Texas, NY to broadcasts on NPR.

I have worked with Doctoral students in voice and with the little children who's voice has not yet set. Each is a unique experience and a treasure of nature. I look forward to guiding you on your journey of self discovery of that amazing instrument ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

"Kristin does an amazing job of meeting me where my abilities and needs are. She listens to what I want out of the lessons, but also challenges me to stretch beyond what I think I can do... and I'm often delightfully surprised. She also teaches me a great deal of music theory as we work through singing which is wonderful. Her guidance in helping me use my "instrument" properly has been so valuable. And she is very patient and intuitive in the process."
